My cousins Carol and Marilyn and I were very close to growing up. My aunt Audrey, their mom, was always a fun person to be around. It is funny how our lives became interwoven over the years.
Marti went to college with Carol, and knew her before she ever met me. Marti transferred to another college where she knew Marilyn before she met me, although we met at that college.
Marilyn married a guy she met in college, Willard. He and I became good friends because I helped him keep Marilyn's car running.
Carol married Jeff, who is a cousin to a guy and a girl that were neighbors of mine when I was a little boy.
So we all have common twists in our relationships before we knew each other and after we all married.
Don't worry if I confused you, there is no test at the end of the blog. (Phew!)
Just a good family picture to document the great time we had together.
Marti, Paul, Aunt Audrey, Marilyn, Willard, Jeff and Carol
It was wonderful to reconnect, meet their kids and spouses and grandchildren. It was another goal of our fulltime travels accomplished, to see relatives that live far away. We'll be back again and stay longer next time.
